Teen Mom UK Spoiler Video: Mia Breaks Down After Manley's Family 'Call Her A Bad Mum'
Mia admits that she's heartbroken after overhearing Manley's family's comments...
Being a new mum is always going to come with its highs, lows, struggles and huge achievements, but with the support of family and friends, the journey can be made a lot easier.
Which is why Mia Boardman, one of our five new mums doing an absolutely amazing job of being a parent on Teen Mom UK, was obviously devastated to overhear that the family of her boyfriend, Manley Geddes, had 'called her a bad mum' behind her back.
In next week's emotional episode, Mia opens up about her motherhood anxiety, explaining that she's 'feeling the pressure' as she's worried that people are judging her for everything she does with Marliya, from the way she holds her to how she feeds her.
Admitting that she's finding being a mum 'really tough', despite looking forward to it 'so much', Mia says: "The past week I've had a bit of a down week, because I feel like people judge the things I do with her.
"When I pick her up, are people looking and thinking 'are you picking her up right?' When I gave her a bath for the first time, I'm thinking 'am I doing this right?' Am I holding her wrong? Am I feeding her wrong?
"I just feel the pressure and I shouldn't really because I should be enjoying this time with Marliya and not worrying about what other people think."
Speaking away from the camera, she then reveals: "And now I've overheard Manley's family saying I'm a bad mum."
Opening up about how (understandably) awful it made her feel to overhear those comments, Mia explains: "To hear that people are making comments about me behind my back, saying that I'm not doing as well as I thought I was, that's obviously heartbreaking for any new mum to hear. It just really hurts."
For the record, we think Mia is doing an incredible job of raising Marliya (as are all our other teen mums are with their little ones, of course).
Mia goes on to admit that she needs a bit of space to sort her head out, because it's in 'such a mess right now'.
We're sending Mia loads of love, and hope she feels a lot better after a bit of a break - but what will happen to her relationship with Manley's family?
